Roscoe Conkling / Valley View - Memorial Parkway & Oneida Street

Roscoe Conkling Park was the first park developed by T.R. Proctor. Within its borders are several Utica attractions, including the Parkway Recreation Center, Val Bialis Ski and Sled Center, the Eagle Monument and Picnic Area, Utica Zoo, Valley View Golf Course (designed by Robert Trent Jones) and the South Woods and Switchbacks.

The Park also contains several different buildings that serve visitors:

The South Woods and Switchback area of the park still retain areas of vegetation much like what early settlers to the region would have seen – ironwood, basswood, viburnum, and other early trees and shrubs.
